Deja like a cancer grows.
Your words may yet come back to haunt you,
Ten years from now they may still taunt you”

Oh I miss the kiss of treachery
The aching kiss before I feed
The stench of a love for a younger meat

As bit by bit it starts the need
To just let go
My party piece

A Poem for the 4th of July 2008

I have never burned an American flag
If I did it was an accident
I have never dropped a bomb or defaced the
Washington monument
But you won’t find a flag on my doorstep
On the fourth of July
Too many criminals try to wrap themselves inside of it
It stands for too many lies
— Dan Bern, My Country Too

I dream of the lies I told you
Wishing they were right
I dream of this day with you
Wishing it was just beginning
I dream of a New American Language
I dream of new beginnings
I dream of saturation bombing
I dream mostly about love
I have a dream.
— Dan Bern, New American Language
